New post

New Flatiron City story. Read it please.

Justified concern

My parents seem to be a little upset that Emily and I are waiting so long to get married. The only time that would really work, though, is this winter. Ideally, we would get married when all of our family can be in town without getting stressed out, but Molly should be in town during winter break, short though it is, and that's when we're getting married. We won't be in compromising situations, so they shouldn't be worried about that. I refuse to get myself into a situation where something wrong could happen. God is the center of my life, and the center of our relationship, and to fear the worst, though understandable, it gets rather tiresome. I know my struggles, my temptations, and my weaknesses. I'm going out of my way to make sure that purity is not lost.

Ok. Jeremy, nice guy that he is, said he'll make our rings for us, which is awesome because they'll be personal. It will also be less expensive. I don't know how much it's going to cost, but he's not going to make us pay labor, so it'll be lab rental (because he doesn't own a lab) and materials. Much less expensive.

It's been nice to have a week off from school. I've done a little homework, and I've worked 43 hours and 45 minutes....my paycheck is going to be nice! I'm going to be writing my novel starting May 1. Period! If I haven't finished the outline, I'll fix things as I go, I need to be writing though, and I need to find out how to continue writing quickly.

Ok, pray for wisdom, as always, and purity. You have my permission to ask me how I'm doing in that front.

Major update!

Ok, the only reason that I didn't write this yesterday is because we hadn't told anyone yet, so our families had to find out first.

On Saturday, March 24, at aproximately 11pm, I asked my best friend, Emily King, to marry me. She said yes. You all wanted to know, I'm sure:)

Saturday

I'll interview at The Children's Hospital this afternoon. I should be volunteering there in the next couple of weeks. I'm so excited.

The compy is still working fine, I've been using it quite a bit and nothing has gone wrong. Still crossing my fingers, though.

Pray for wisdom, yet again. I've been dry this week, and I'm really feeling it. I need to be more consistant. I've been praying, but the lack of Biblical input is draining.

I'm making headway on my step sheet. Way behind schedule as far as writing goes, but I might be able to start writing by may (that might have been my first goal anyway). I'm at work right now, just waiting for a client to show up and make a return. He has just over an hour. I'm going to work on FC for a bit.

Aaaaand....I dropped it

My Mac has already taken a fall. It still works fine (as far as I know), but it fell out of my bag as I was packing it up at work. My protection plan doesn't cover falls, either. At least it still works. I'm obsessive about taking care of this kind of thing, so it shouldn't have happened this time, and it shouldn't happen again.

Oh hey, I got a mc

That's right, I got one. A MacBook Pro. Stripped, but all I need. If I ever need anything bigger, I'll be making enough money to buy a better one.

Oh, does anyone know any good security software for Macs? I need something, like a popup blocker for Safari. Please let me know.

Almost time for bed. I just have a couple things to finish loading on.

What a day

Yesterday one of my friends got married, and it's the first wedding I've been to in four years where I didn't feel all, "When will it be my turn to get married?" I am genuinely happy for them! And excited that they are so happy.

Then today happened. It turns out that one of my best friend's girlfriend might be cheating on him. They are living together, which is something I, as a Christian, don't agree with, but they aren't Christians, so I'm not holding them to my standard. However, I know some stuff is going on, and I don't know how much HE knows. Ethically, I feel like I should tell him what I know, but at the same time, I don't want to be a trouble maker. Of course this happens the one week when ALL of my spiritual leaders are out of town (two on a mission trip to Israel, and one (mentioned above) on his honeymoon). Grrrr! I don't know what to do, and it's making me depressed and nauseous.

Time for bed. Maybe I'll feel better in the morning.

I meant to, I swear

I was going to write last night, hanging out with Emily, but she showed up later than expected, and then we ordered pizza from Papa Murphy's, show up and they were closed, so we hopped (not literaly) over to the King's and got Red Baron's pizza instead. The pizza wasn't finished until almost ten, and I had a Guinness with dinner (it was St Pati's day, what do you expect? Ok, I drink Guinness anyway.....). Needless to say, all I did was watch a movie and chit chat. No writing. But the talking was good.

Steve is getting married today, that should be cool. I'm just getting ready to have my devotions, then I'll finish getting ready for the wedding.

Bachelor Party tonight

No, not mine. My buddy Steve is getting married on sunday. I won't get plastered, a: because the Bible says not to get drunk on too much wine, but be filled with the Holy Spirit (sounds religious, but I believe that is a command), b: I don't like how getting a little too buzzed feels, c: I have to drive tonight, d: I have to work in the morning. It'll be fun, though.

I've been getting a lot of church lately, I really like it :)

Still reading Psalms. There is so much awesome stuff. Oh, on that note, if you want to see a fictional representation of Esther's husband, watch 300. Yep, same guy.

School is going well, I keep remaining caught up on my homework. Oh yeah, I'll be volunteering at Children's Hospital soon. I have an interview on the 24th of March. I should be able to do it on Sundays. Emily is applying too.

I have to get some writing done this weekend. I have an idea for another FC short, so we'll see what happens. Depending on what happens with school over the summer I might spend a lot more time writing for FC and my book.

God Bless You.

School

I'm getting tired really easily. I should be in bed right now but I still need to take a shower.

I finally had a chance to go to church. I've missed the service for my age-group the previous two weeks. It's nice to have consistancy in my life....I've been growing spiritually for several months now, and I've had the opportunity to help others grow. It is such a blessing to be alowed to serve God that way. I love that He is using me.

I want changes again. I'm feeling like there needs to be more to my life, but I don't know what it is. I want to know. I need to work on writing again, but school has been getting in the way of that. I should have a computer soon, though, so I'll have more opportunities to write.

I just wish I knew what I was feeling and why. It's not bad, it's just that I feel like there should be so much more than there is, like God has more for me, I just don't know what else He wants me to do.

So....tired.....

It probably has something to do with the fact that I've been working six days a week, only 38 hours, but six days still makes it hard for your body to relax. Oh yeah, I was up until two on saturday also.....except after I got up at ten, I remembered (for the fifth or sixth time that weekend) that time jumped ahead an hour. So I went to bed at three and got up at eleven. Then I did homework for a few minutes, hung out with some friends, went to see 300 because Jeremy's birthday is today, then we all went to village inn. I was home by 12:15 and in bed by quarter to one.

I like my new job, I just get tired and I don't have a whole lot of time to do what I'd like......such as sleeping. I can't really ask for time off yet, either.

K, gotta go to work.

Update on my life

Ok, so I haven't posted in a while....My new job started on monday, and I really like it. I have energy, even after six days of work, the type of physical activity that I haven't done in over two years. It's still less draining than one holiday weekend in retail!

I'm borrowing my mom's laptop this afternoon and right now I'm sitting at La Dolce Vita (Italian for The Sweet Life) in Old Town. I'm pretty much caught up on homework for the weekend, what I don't get done tonight I'll work on tomorrow.

I'm going to go to church at 7:15, skipping the music because I don't really like it, but I love the teaching. Anyhow, after church I'll probably hang out with a friend.

Ramble, ramble.......I need my own laptop. I'm going to get one with my tax return. Hopefully.

I don't want to do my homework right now, so I'm stalling.

I need more time to work on my book. I haven't worked on it in a while, but after I get my own laptop I should be able to do more work.

Typing sucks on this thing. I'll get used to it eventually, I'm sure.

Pray for me. I need wisdom. I need guidance. I have money, though, so that's not an issue.

I saw "The Bridge to Terabithia" last night, good movie. I cried. Ok, fine, I'll get to work now....if I must.
